Description

Marc Delienne Fleurie "Abbaye Road” 2019

Abbaye Road is named for the residence that Marc Delienne purchased when he moved to Beaujolais. It's a blend of multiple batches of fruit from his vineyards, organically farmed slopes in Fleurie, aged in his huge foudres. It's another fantastic release from this rising star producer.

100% Gamay.


A juicy, fragrant wine with notes of red fruits, blueberries and spice. Great balance with silky, succulent fruit and a core of acid holding things in place.  Really good now but will improve for maybe 3 to 6 years.

Manual harvest in small crates, sorting in the cellar. Maceration of the whole harvest in concrete vats under temperature control. Neither yeast addition nor chaptalisation. No punching down, light daily pumping over. Short vatting (between 6 and 12 days depending on the cuvées).
